Baby Girl!

March 20th, 2012 at 02:57 pm

On Friday a little baby girl called Sophie was born. She weighed 8lb 1 and a half oz.

A new day

Thanks for all the nice comments on my last post.

I'm feeling a lot better today. I seen the midwife today and she made me feel relaxed. I'm just going to forget about what my friend said. She is one of those people that overreacts, and she definetly takes things OTT. I haven't spoken to her at all today and, it's a bad thing to say, but I feel better for it. It's been so long since I've seen her I'd forgotten how worked up she gets me at times.

I watched one of those maternity programmes tonight - I've been avoiding them - and it actually wasn't that bad. Plus, I've been reading up about breathing techniques so I'm feeling calmer now.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Worrying now...

I met up with my friend today. She's expecting her second child in a few months. All we spoke about today was baby stuff and I left feeling useless. The amount of things she said that I hadn't even thought about, most of them were just silly but some of them were about the actual labour. She was surprised that I haven't got a TENS machine for during the labour, honestly I hadn't even thought about it. I've been reading up on breathing techniques. I missed the antenatal classes because they clashed with my appointments, and I got a few of the days mixed up, but I have been reading up online. I was supposed to be relaxed after meeting up with her but now I'm worried (and exhausted from spending hours walking about the shopping centre)

To top it all off, I spent more than I'd planned to on lunch. My 3 subway turned into 10 at pizza hut!

Hello March

I've been slacking on the financial front lately, at least that's how it feels. I haven't made any financial goals for this month. I think it's going to be a tight month: my final car payment is due. Also my maternity pay started this week so my next pay will be lower.

Baby is due in nine days - we've been trying to get last minute things done. We're almost there, although I do keep worrying that I might have forgotten something.

CC2 increased my limit. I'll be staying away from it.

My massive catalogue bill should reduce dramatically by May, if I've worked it out properly.
